Minutes from last week's IOF meeting. ISSOM2019 in effect 1 Jan 2020:

15.1. MC: Approval ISSprOM 2019
TH presented the draft International Standard for Sprint Orienteering Maps (ISSprOM 2019) from Map Commission. The specification had been consulted with FOC, TOC and RC and following some modifications all 3 commissions recommended approval. Council noted that unfortunately Athletes Commission input had not been received despite several requests.

HK raised concerns about the removal of the dark green colour used to denote vegetation which is “forbidden to pass” in the previous version of the specification.
Council also discussed the use of “impassable” and “forbidden” wording in the specification. Council agreed to keep the wording regarding forbidden areas as proposed but noting that this should be viewed only as informational text and that the symbols which show forbidden to cross or enter must be listed in the IOF Competition Rules.

Council, voting 8 FOR/1 AGAINST/2 NOT PRESENT approved the ISSprOM 2019 for use.

The use of the new specification would be required for any IOF events held as of 1 January 2020 and after that date. IOF Events held prior to 1 January 2020 should use the ISSOM 2007 specification or ask for a rules deviation to use ISSprOM 2019 if desired.

Council would ask the Map Commission to consider if there was a need in the future to have separate mapping standards for forest and urban areas, or if the 2 specifications could be combined.
